Top Ten Big Events that Were Overshadowed by Another
"This is among the reasons why I think Britain should become a republic."
The royal family is just a decoration in UK, they have nothing to do with reign, it's just because of the tourism.
What I heard most of the another things on the list but I never heard of this :O What a shame...
This is among the reasons why I think Britain should become a republic.
I feel like it was direct. I mean, maybe OJ Simpson wasn't a big deal, but the media intentionally popularized it, because they wanted to distract the people from realize what happened in Rwanda.
In most of these, the more important event is the one that overshadows the less important one, but wow, Rwanda Genocide was a big deal, bigger than OJ Simpson.
Why did people care more about a trial than a brutal genocide?
Some territory was lost after World War 1 and a lot more after World War 2, basically started by Hitler's Nazi dictatorship. Then the Soviets kept their zone - the 'DDR', East Germany, separate with a wall through the middle of Berlin, until 1990 when the country was reunited. ...read more.
Unlike many others on the list... Electric Lights caught on, traditional traffic lights nowadays are only seen at a Cracker Barrel or a museum
That doesn't really matter compared to a moon landing...
Because Earhart couldn't fly over, FairFax decided to row across instead.
What! Are you saying that the world should have focused on roger moore who had lived a long life instead of the young victims who died during the bombing?
No, this wasn't overshadowed. The tragedy of Manchester was on everyone's mind, at least from where I was. But we felt for Roger as well.
Oh come on! Why are celebrities more important than the lives of innocent children? I don't get people these days!
Really? People were all over Twitter tweeting their condolences to the late Linkin Park singer and posted tributes.
Technically he is on Parole for 5 years but that is still pretty big but Chester Bennington died so no one really cared.
Apologies. I read the sentence wrong. But people were still talking about OJ.
If I own a dog and a son and both are in danger, I would definitely choose my son over my dog because I know it's hard and saddening but sometimes you must sacrifice your own pet to save your only child. For this one, Harambe's case fits perfectly into my dilemma here
Why do people care about this gorilla so much? What did he do to deserve this much love?
There were only like 700 of those gorillas in the WORLD. And the kid was like 2 years old.
He made 13 feature films with his siblings the Marx Brothers, of whom he was the third-born. He also had a successful solo career, most notably as the host of the radio and television game show You Bet Your Life. ...read more.
Jesus Christ, this is the most disrespectful thing I have seen on TopTen. Get this off the list!
But that was Bush and not terrorists, it was a pretense to attacking Iraq
Mother Teresa's death should have been broadcasted over Diana's death.
Mother Teresa deceased 5 days after Princess Diana's death, when the hype around Princess Diana's death was still huge, so Mother Teresa's death received less attention
This one is just sad. ALthough Katy Perry is great, her personal life doesn't sound too different from most others
I can definitely understand this. Really, if your President (if you live in the U.S) died and a show started airing at the same time, I would probably care more about the President's death than the show. I understand that this being in the list doesn't mean you think Doctor Who starting was more important than JFK's death, though.
Honestly if anybody gets triggered by this item and they misunderstand the list because of it I'm gonna... plan out what I'm gonna do then do it.
According to TVTropes, this was also a very important day in Detroit Lions history.
Boxing sucks, how would a match of it overshadow someone's death?
I've heard both on the media.
The stupid reactions to this list are proof that humans are devolving fast, or that the people reacting are in a previous stage of human evolution.
Doesn't matter. The Blueprint is still remembered.
It's crazy how sometimes 1 person's death overshadows a tragedy that involves multiple people. Usually those overshadow the death of 1, but this was the unexpected death of 1 of the Power Rangers' actors as well as their best actor. Known as Tommy Oliver the white ranger. We still shouldn't ignore the fact that the shooting killed multiple lives. 5 of them, yet 25 were hurt. Gun violence shouldn't be ignored. R.I.P. to them all.
They were both viral. One never shadowed the other...
I don't know what media you consume, but no, the Club Q shooting was not overshadowed in any regard.
The return of Woody and Buzz Lightyear? To Hell with that, Spain won the world cup despite the brunt of a dirty Dutch side including an incident in which Spain's Xabi Alonso got booted in the chest by Holland's Nigel de Jong and yet Jong wasn't red carded for that challenge by Howard Webb.
I think Toy Story 3 was a big hit. But I agree World Cup finals was bigger than the movie at that time.
The world cup is more important than anything Disney makes.
I was thinking of adding 2020 Bush-Fires overshadowed, but the bushfires were tamed by the time COVID gained traction
9/11 & COVID-19 were said to be manmade & terrorized places. 9/11 was Al Qaeda's plan on attacking America & the World Trade Center collapsed & 2,997 people died. COVID-19 killed hundreds of thousands of Americans & over 5 million worldwide & has taken place in all of 2020 & made its way in 2021. COVID-19 actually started in September 2019 & spread worldwide in 2020 yet has put many businesses at risk. COVID-19 was even said to be the result of the Chinese government creating a virus to postpone Donald Trump's election (which should count as an act of terror toward the U.S. though Joe Biden won & is now our current President of the U.S.).
This item makes no sense, they took place nearly two decades apart.
This has absolutely NO reason to be put on here. Whoever put this on here doesn't realize that losing a well-known, longtime, legendary & powerful prime minister of an entire country to MURDER is worse than losing even the best video game players to cancer. Cancer is awful, but murder is serious. Technoblade's death was shocking & that's an understatement yet it blew up all over the media, but Shinzo Abe's death was just nothing to describe (yet it blew up on the media too). Yet what was really shocking about Shinzo's death was that Japan rarely ever has gun violence, but he was KILLED by a man with a gun & it was 3D PRINTED! This surely seems like a way to promote fear with the use of 3D printed guns over real guns because somebody can just print a gun in 3D using a 3D printer. Yet the security didn't stop the person from shooting him. Techno's death got a lot of coverage since it was unexpected to the public due to the best Minecraft player of all time joking about getting better, ...more
That's not really true. Technoblade was only missed by the game niche. Japan has more people than there are gamers.
The search for Chandra Levy, who at the time was still believed to be alive, had been dominating the news for a while. Then 9/11 happened and she was pretty much forgotten about until her bones were found a year later.
I didn't care about the shooting in my opinion. I just wanted to watch the Olympics.
Didn't Parkland like come a little after?
Well never forget Sean Connery the original actor for James Bond but we'll never forget Alex Trebek, the best game show host (as well as the host of Jeapordy). He was over 80 years though Sean Connery made it through 90. Sadly Trebek lost his battle to stage 4 pancreatic cancer that same year of 2020. He was the Jeapordy G.O.A.T. R.I.P.
Steve Jobs invented Apple products 56 years before his passing. Pierre Cardin didn't invent fashion but marketed it for much of his life & helped bring all the stuff in the modern-day industry to life. He marketed a thing that had a cultural impact on humanity over all the years, decades & centuries of existence & did better than any other fashion marketer. However there's disagreement in this since Steve Jobs passed away at only 56 whereas Pierre Cardin was almost 98 & a half. R.I.P. to both legends.
I may be biast because I live in Georgia, but I heard more about the spa shootings than the market shooting.
